Cleveland City Hall in Ohio is closing Monday following a “cyber incident,” according to city officials.

The scope or nature of the “cyber incident” has not yet been determined, city officials said in a press release, stressing that they are “taking this incident seriously,” according to Fox 8.

The city has shut down several affected systems in response to the incident, but emergency service systems, including police, fire and EMS services, will still be in operation.
